Wayne Arnold Keup
Grantham, NH — It is with great sadness we announce that Wayne Arnold Keup passed away on March 28, 2021 at the age of 73. Beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, he was a kind, brilliant, and friendly man who worked incredibly hard to provide those he loved with every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment. Raised in Watertown, SD he attended the University of Southern California on a Navy ROTC scholarship. After his time in the Navy, as an attorney, he was a partner at several prominent firms in DC before opening his own practice. He delighted in his family and his 5 "grandgirls" gave him particular joy in his last 10 years. He is survived by his wife (Paula), his son and daughter (Chris and Heidi), their spouses (Corey and Aaron), his granddaughters (Harper, Aoife, Nell, Aedith, and Lowen), and his sister (Elaine).
